Another reason i don't like roddick

watching the tape of his semi i realized one more thing i really don't like about him. the commentators keep talking about his charisma and how he interacts with the crowd and respects his opponents, but, i have realized that he only does that when he is winning. the moment he gets down in a match he turns into a little bitch constantly argueing and screaming. there were literally tears in his eyes towards the end of the hewitt match. remember playing goran in 2001. he threw himself onto the ground and had a hissy-fit. anyways, just one more reason to hate him...

btw, has anyone noticed that no one sits next to mattress mac :haha: the entire row is empty except for him. lol

hey croat you could have posted this in any other thread about roddick on the front page, there is 10 at least.

i dont blame you for being bitter as Roddick is on a 8 match winning streak against croat players :bounce: :bounce:

Its funny how you dont like Roddick and you are croatian after all the croat players must adore roddick just look at how they try to play the same game style as roddick. I think at tennis schools in croatia roddick must be very popular.

ummm...no. most tennis fans there can't stand him. if you think most players play that style of play, then you know nothing about (recent) tennis history

i am sure the croatian tennis schools are covered with roddick posters, coaches keep saying roddick quotes and they are forced to watch 10 hours of roddick matches per day.

No, croatian tennis schools are filled with posters and quotes of the most knowledgeable tennis fan ever, Hitchhiker.

Come on, now... you really expect Andy to be thrilled and personable when he's losing?

I'm usually all for hating players... and Andy certainly gives you enough ammo... but you guys take it quite far with Andy.

There needs to be a middle ground between the WTAWorld and this board.

Venus & Serena are basically the female equivalent of Andy... and if you peep one negative word about them, you're banned and burned at the stake. Here with Andy, it's just fine and dandy. :p

look at it this way. goran had charisma. he could lose his top, but he always had fun out there. i remember he was once getting his ass kicked by guga and there were two airplane seats on court and he fooled around with them during the changeover. roddick just strikes me as too fake.

That's your opinion. There were people who couldn't stand Goran and found his stick a little tiresome.

My question is why are you giving someone you don't like so much power over you? Why don't you concentrate more on the players you like instead of the one player you apparently despise?

I felt Hewitt behavior in that match way more annoying than Roddick. He was no annoying that I started to cheer for Roddick ( :rolleyes: )!! I saw nothing wrong with andy's behavior, or maybe I was blinded By Hewitt's!! :(

I thought that sentiment was shared by Agassi, who also suggested that the woman had not "got enough" for --heaven forbid --calling his shot out

Thanks GF, I'm glad to have earned that from you.

But seriously, I don't get people who have so much time and energy on their hands that they can use it for threads like this on this forum. I prefer to read posts from people who talk up the game of tennis and the players that they like, or educational critiques from intelligent fans like GWH, Rosie, RonE and others. Posting anti-Roddick threads here (for no real reason, even worse when a thread about that match already exists and you could have posted there) is about as original as calling the state of California a bowl of granola ('full of nuts, fruits, and flakes' in case you hadn't heard that one).

The irony about these threads is that posters who don't like them post in them, thereby keeping them bumped, making them longer, and creating the balance for arguments :p

You'd be the better poster to *ignore* them :shrug: But posting in them makes you no better than the posters your rail against.

he seems to have become a lot worse of late. i quite like his personality off the court but on it he has become akin to a petulant child IMO. he needs to take a leaf out of roger's book i think.

i dislike hewitt attitude more though.

more recently against his match with safin, he didn't bother to look that marat helped the ballboy get the ball that is why he didn't get to ready himself for andy's serve. andy was then disgusted as if marat was deliberately doing that. hmmpphh!

Does Roddick run through handshakes after a losing in a grand slam and then go spread flat out lies in the press conference?

Does Roddick wear hideous outfits that make fans turn the other way?

Many talk about how Roddick is overexposed in the media, yet that doesn't compare to Serena's overexposure.

Does Roddick give his opponents a slap in the face and say, "oh I'm only at 20% that's why the match lasted so long?"

And with the exception of tangerine_dream, Roddick fans are much more intelligent and mature than the Rena fans.

So is tangerinus that doesn't mean you have to like her, though this proves my theory that if you look hard enough you can find redeeming features in nearly anything.

I can understand why people would be annoyed with and not like the childish ways that Andy can act sometimes. I guess I can tolerate it because I used to act in a VERY similar way in my tenpin bowling league. It's only been over the last about 4 years that I've got myself under control and realised that I bowl a lot better if I relax and treat it as fun instead of getting worked up, crying and throwing a tantrum!... hey and 4 years ago I was 22 years old.

I know it is not the most attractive characteristic and I cringe watching it sometimes, but I do understand it.
